The Gianmaria Buccellati Award for Excellence in Design was established in partnership with the Gianmaria Buccellati Foundation in 2018 to recognise outstanding talent in design among GIA students globally. Every year over 200 students’ work is reviewed and recognised by peers, faculty staff and ultimately by a panel of distinguished judges to determine an awardee. A student exhibition of finalists will be organised and displayed in Tucson and New York.
How to Qualify for the AwardThe competition is open to all students who successfully complete the GIA Jewelry Design course in the same calendar year. All designs submitted are original, hand-rendered works painted according to GIA’s Jewelry Design curriculum and completed during the course. The pieces then go through several phases of judging and are ultimately evaluated by a panel of industry experts in design, manufacturing, jewellery retail and jewellery publication.
